    FWIW, here's Vernon Gholston's appearances on the stat sheet:

    And here's our rookie LB:
    Not the rookie LB you were expecting? :D

    did the stat sheet for mayo exceed the length limit on a post :D

    Both Guyton and Mayo look great....Gholston will be a good LB still IMO but mayo should be a probowler this year no joke - hes second in the league to only Dqwell jackson (butchered that name i think) ...

    In addition, Woods is looking better too!! I think the weak link is our CB and S

    Not bad. The Jets looks to have used the 6th pick in the draft and spent $50 million on a special teams guy who cannot return kicks or punts. Great value there.

    I am beginning to wonder if Gholston will ever be a good LB. I think he may be more suited to be a DE in the 4-3. From everything I have seen and read, the guy is struggling as an OLB in the 3-4. Not every fast, strong DE can be converted into OLB and that was the risk the Jets were making with this guy. He seems to be heading to Mike Mamula territory, but still way too early to declare that definitely.
